Recovery Centers of America Coming to Waldorf


Recovery Centers of American has purchased the former 20 acre Changing Point South building at 11100 Billingsley Rd. Waldorf, MD.  Plans are to put $25 Million dollars into renovating and add buildings to the facility up to around 90,000 sf.  They have purchased several properties on the east coast to build localized, innovative alcohol and drug-addiction facilities which will offer a comprehensive continuum of treatment programs.  They plan to open this summer 2016.  Picture below is of the building many years ago.  Since then its fallen into some disrepair and has been used for churches and homeless shelters.  In my opinion they should have bought land and built a new facility.  I'm glad someone is finally going to do something with this property but refitting a dated building is a pain.  Too many new code requirements to deal with.

UPDATE: 5-6-16 RCA is still working on permits to get existing buildings renovated.  Site needs to comply with newer codes and regulations so it it taking longer.  No word on an opening date yet.

I don't know much about codes and all, but I am always happy to see a new business come and renovate an eyesore rather than clearing more land and building anew.

They have toured the area. That's all I can say right now.

Glad it won't be abandoned but kinda sketchy having a rehab near our homes

Having a rehab center in the neighborhood is intimidating but given the growing rates of heroin addition etc..., it's good that there will be a place that people can get help and not be on the streets.
